DESCRIPTION:

The Husky Mounted Detection System (HMDS) is a counter-improvised explosive device system that provides stand-off detection and marking of surface-laid and buried explosive hazards, booby-traps and unexploded ordnance in complex and urban terrain in support of route clearance operations. HMDS is a mission equipment package mounted on current and programmed Husky vehicles organic to engineer units.

BENEFIT TO THE WARFIGHTER

HMDS will detect and mark explosive hazards, operate in complex and urban terrain, minimize warfighter workload, and move the warfighter out of the blast zone.

SPECIFICATIONS

HMDS will be developed in three increments:

  • Increment A1: Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) (variant used currently in theater) and stand-alone GPR V1 trainer
  • Increment A2: GPR with an integrated Deep Buried Detection capability, Common Installation Kit and associated training devices
  • Increment B: Semi-autonomous control of Husky vehicle and HMDS
